The Xiaomi Redmi Note 8T is a wonderful phone. It’s a really cheap phone with great specs and good build quality. But just like any other phone, you get loats of bloatware on it for free. Here are the steps of how to debloat the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8T.

  1. Download the debloater package we made from our site, here.
  2. Enable developer mode on your smartphone
  3. Connect the smartphone to your pc
  4. Select PNP mode
  5. Accept the popup on your phone
  6. Run the debloater MIUI Debloater.bat
  7. OPTIONAL run the debloater Google Debloater.bat if you also want to remove the Google apps. (I would not recommend this).

Now you have your smartphone free of bloatware.

Why should you want to debloat the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8T

All this bloatware makes the phone slower and uses a bit of battery power. Next to that, I personally don’t like the fact that these apps gather all sorts of information about you, the user. I know Google is doing this too, but the less apps tacking me the better in my opinion.

Is debloating safe?

We have tested this on the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8T and we have found no issues so far. Debloating your smartphone should be safe but please remember that you do this at your own risk.

Does this work on other Xiaomi smartphones?

Yes, this should actually work on ANY MIUI phone, but we only tested it on the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8T, so if you use is on a different Xiaomi phone, you do this at your own risk.

Are there other steps to make this phone better?

If you don’t like the MIUI looks like me, you could also start using a different launcher. I like the Nova launcher, as its highly customizable and it comes for free. There are a lot more different launchers out there though, so it might be interesting to take a look at what the market has to offer.
